Sun Rolls Out New java.net Site

Sun has rolled out their new java.net site to act as a new collaboration/community spot for Java development.

Given that the organization of the development stuff on java.sun.com was never that good, this seems to hold some promise. For one thing they provide project hosting and they do it in ways that are different and sometimes better than Sourceforge. For example, you can have a wiki tied to every project and you can also have projects within projects (i.e. the JGoodies encompasses both Forms and Looks projects.
They also have a site wide wiki, weblogs, and several focus areas that concentrate on desktop applications, games, JXTA, etc. All in all, I think it’s pretty cool.
